    reflection in jsp doesn't find class in lib jar

    Dieter Cailliau Newbie

      I have a jsp that tries to instantiate a class using Class.forName(name).newInstance(). The class public (single in it's file), and is inside a jar, the jar is inside the war (under lib/), and the war is inside the ear.

      The exception that occurrs is ClassNotFoundException.

      Other clases in other packages in the same jar are found using reflection.

      It's a basic class that has noting but 6 public primitive fields. Other classes in the same package are successfully called by the same jsp (not using reflection).

      I'm using jboss 3.0.1 with tomcat.

      public class RightsUpdate
      {
      public String community;
      public String user;
      public int manager_grant;
      public int learner_grant;
      public int manager_deny;
      public int learner_deny;
      }
